Very professional tour. Punctual. Short safety briefing. Bread cheese and croissants on arrival. Lovely views of the Mediterranean shoreline. Gorgeous excursion in a sunny day. Swimming and snorkelling off the boat. Nice lunch. Slow drift back. Crew were very helpful and engaging. Nice to be in a small party. Perfect.

Check-in was a bit slow because they had to check for proof of vaccination. They even did a rapid test for those without proof. But it might have been faster if they'd just required people to have negative test or vaccine proof. I had emailed the organizers beforehand to check the requirements. Lots of food and drink. The crew tried to create a fun atmosphere for everyone.

There was an error on the meeting location for the small catamaran cruise. There were 4 parties who had booked with your website and given the erroneous meeting location. Of the 4 parties, only one of us were from France and could navigate this situation well. They brought us to the catamaran just in time for sailing. We had tried the phone number listed on the booking at it gave us an answering machine. If not for our fellow passenger, I would have believed we had been cheated. I cannot stress how badly this could have gone. We were lucky. I docked a star from this experience because of this. It is a simple thing to get right. The address we were sent to was a tourist gift shop. They had no idea what we were talking about. Terrible. The food was good; the views spectacular. We were allowed to move about the catamaran at will which was a treat as the larger boats we saw doing similar cruises had to sit in their seats. Well worth the additional cost.
